I'm in a really in between mood about my acne today. i know i'm seeing slight differences everyday and that my skin is slowly but surely beginning to make a minute bit of change everyday for the better but sometimes i still think urgh! then again it's progress so i'm not letting myself feel down.
as of today i have about two or three spots, two by my cheek and one on my chin - i hate chin ones - like it's not scarred enough already.
anyway i have also nearly come to the end of week 6 of dianette (two days away) When i say week 6 it makes me realise how less time i've been on it but then when i say a month and a half it feels like forever (weird i know) but the point is i'm hoping that after this month it becomes the turn around month.
I'm back to work tomorrow as well so i think i'm a bit nervous about that - if acne knows how to do one thing right its ruin self esteem. Sometimes, however, i like to pretend i still have my clear skin and that helps build confidence until i look in a mirror and try to fathom how i convinced myself that was possible.
it doesnt matter. i have got positive comments from my family saying they can also see the improvements. it helps but then a part of me knows they are being nice about it.
so my new regimen is this - wash face with cold water apply rose water. somewhere during the middle of the day i'll wash my face with cold water and apply effaclar duo and then in the night i'll wash my face again and apply effaclar duo and the ai spot treatment and that's it. I've realised cutting out the lemon has reduced inflamation.
i'll be wearing my make up - i bought the la roche posay teint one the non clogging make up and i'll be trying it tomorrow - like a concealer not a base!
i'll let you know how it goes!
